HEY!  US Citizens over 18!

The upcoming midterm elections are poised to be incredibly important for the future of our country.  You need to vote in them–the primaries and the general.

Are you registered to vote?  If you think you are, take a moment to check your registration well ahead of voting day.  Make sure you know your voting dates, polling place, how to get an absentee ballot if you need one, and any ID requirements.

If you aren’t, register right now!  Many states require registration before a deadline some time in advance of voting day, so don’t wait.

(Vote.org is reputable, but if you don’t want to use them, just Google “[state] voter registration” for information.)

And I don’t want to get too partisan on this post, but… if you have any reservations about voting for a “lesser evil,” get over them now.  Our voting system requires strategic voting, and that sucks, but since it’s true, vote strategically!  Vote your heart in the primaries, but in the general, vote for the lesser evil.  It’s a hell of a lot better than sitting on the sidelines patting yourself on the back for purity while the greater evil wins.
